Summer Happenings

Summer is flying by at rapid speed.  And although some days seem to find us at a loss with something to do, we've had some really fun days as well.


Last day of school/work.

My fellow teacher assistants :)

Ann- rising 6th grader

Matt- rising 3rd grader
You can totally tell which one of those two liked having me working at their school.

We had a playdate with friends from back in the day....when we were all new moms in a moms group. I love the lasting friendships.....

.....and can't believe our growing-up-too-fast children.

My sister and I met up in New Hope, PA to see a play.  Steel Magnolias is one of our favorite movies and it was brought to the stage at the Bucks County Playhouse.  It was a fun day of shopping, eating, and entertainment.

It was an almost perfect day until a stop at Wawa on my ride home for iced coffee and Fritos made it completely perfect.

On June 20th Bill and I celebrated 18 years of marriage. 
No picture of us, just our dinner.

(Did any of my regular readers notice I did catch up posts last month for each member of the family except Bill?  This just occurred to me.  Good grief.  I guess I won't be getting the Wife of the Year award)


Somebody turned 8.

Matt ate too many chicken tacos for dinner and was feeling full and had a hard time looking at the cake.... hence, that face.

Next time I will post about the day that all five kids have deemed the BEST day of the summer so far.
Until then.....


  1. Miss this awesome family!
    Your summer looks great so far...
    And Happy Anniversary, fellow June Bride!
    Let me know if you all want to take a road trip up here before school starts.
    Steve makes a mean s'more!!!!!

  2. Ah, that's perfect. The little things matter most. :)
    Enjoy the rest of the month.

  3. Sounds like you are having a good summer so far. Can't wait to hear about your best day of summer!!
